WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A 9-year-old boy has died after being on life support since being pulled from a pool in Winston-Salem on July 10.

Winston-Salem police said the child was spotted underwater and not moving at a pool in the Salem Crest Apartments off Ebert Road.

A passerby said he pulled the boy from the water and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation was performed.

The boy was rushed to the hospital where he remained hospitalized until police say he died early Friday morning.

Police said the boy was not being supervised by an adult at the time of the incident. Neighbors said that’s not what normally happens but the boy was too excited about visiting the pool and ran off without adults realizing it.

The investigation is ongoing.
